Stayed here a couple nights on my way south from Chennai. No paved roads here! Bicycle from room to beach side pool and spa, or just walk in hot tropical sun. Listen to ocean surf at night when it cools down just a bit. Want nothing but a bathing suit on all say at ocean or pool. Great Aruvedic massage... More

We recently spent 6 nights at this lovely hotel and would go back in a heartbeat. We were looking for a place to relax and recharge after spending a couple of hectic weeks in Pondicherry and the Dune turned out to be the perfect spot. We had a Garden room, nicely private with our own sun loungers and close to... More

It's a huge property. If you see at outskirt that is not very impressive but each of the houses represent the culture of each state which makes it unique. Food is very excellent. We took foreign guests. They just loved this place and spicy food. Swimming pool is awesome

The online site, is totally opposite to the glimpse of the hotel.... much much expensive than a 5 star hotel in an area like this, food not worth, bad decor in the room, bed side lamps dont even have a shade and guests are open to check the manufacturing date as well; clumsy!!! Bath tub .... awful is the word!... More

The service was very good, staff was very knowledgeable, and helpful. Even though it was sold out but didn't feel that way, good access to the beach, very nice swimming pool. My daughter loved the activities such as milking the cow, pottery making and all. Food was excellent. After 3 days there, we could spend more time and just relax... More
